PORES issues

 

Welcome to PORES 5.

This issue is comprised of two parts.
Part one - Poetry and Public Language is online now.
Part two - Text and Music will be published in stages over the coming months. A good excuse for you to keep coming back!

PORES 1 was designed by Michael Hrebeniak. Subsequently Bill Griffiths redesigned and developed the site.
Bill Griffiths died last year. As well as writing very fine poetry, Bill taught himself HTML, designed a number of web sites of his own and published digitally-based texts. For appreciations of Bill see the links below.

Veer Books will celebrate Bill's work with the publication of The Lion Man & others in the summer of 2008, a collection of his work that Bill had been compiling with us at the time of his death.

Bill Griffith's Collected Earlier Poems (1968-80), edited by Alan Halsey & Ken Edwards, will be published by Reality Street and West House in 2010.

 

In order to continue to use the College server, the design for PORES 5 has been developed within Birkbeck protocols.
Special thanks to Barbara Harris and Stephen Mooney for design and editing work.
